Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) $15 level of course will offer support

Silver markets pulled back during thin trading on Monday as traders came back from the weekend. With the holiday schedule, and of course volume would have been late, so I don’t read too much into the pullback other than the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level offered a bit of a bid. Below there, I think the $15 level of course will offer support as well, so I think it’s only a matter of time before we bounce.

Quite frankly, I have no interest in shorting Silver, because the US dollar, although strengthening over the last couple of days, has to deal with the Federal Reserve changing its stance over the last couple of days. That being the case, the market looks likely to punish the US dollar of the longer-term. I look at pullbacks and silver as an opportunity to pick it up at a better price, as I do believe the longer-term trajectory in silver is going to be higher.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 15.13.

The projected upper bound is: 15.62.

A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 27 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 4 white candles.

Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 16.3680. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 10 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 48.02. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -236.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 10 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.
